Dem Rep. Seth Moulton: Democrats Have Not Learned Their Lesson from the 2016 Election

GEIST: “You and I were talking a second ago about the Democratic Party a little bit broadly. Coming up on a year now since Hillary Clinton lost to Donald Trump, do you think the Democratic Party has learned the right lessons from her loss about where it should head moving forward?”
MOULTON: “I’m not sure we have. I think we have to take a hard look at ourselves in the mirror and recognize that we’ve lost, not just in 2016, but in several elections before that. We’re in the worst position we’ve been since the 1920s in the House, the Senate, and the White House. We’re not in a governing position at all. And if we don’t realize that we are partly to blame for that, that we’ve lost touch with a lot of American voters, we’ve lost touch with a lot of voters who used to be on our side, then we’re not going to be able to move forward.”
